What is the difference between HDL and ldl?

What is the difference between HDL and ldl?

Good vs. Bad: Hdl is the 'healthy' cholesterol that 'cleans' the blood vessels of 'blockages' (plaques). Ldl is the 'lousy' cholesterol that is the main component of the arterial plaques. One would want a very high HDL (above 50 mg/dl for women) and a very low LDL (close to 60-70 mg/dl). ...Read more

What is the difference between LDL and hdl? What is good and bad for you?

HDL is Good: Hdl or high density lipoprotein and LDL or low density lipoprotein are particles that are important in cholesterol metabolism. Hdl is the "good" particle that pulls cholesterol out of the arterial wall. Ldl is the "bad" particle particularly when it is "dense" or cholesterol laden that allow cholesterol transportation and deposition into the artery wall accelerating atherosclerosis. ...Read more

What is the difference between HDL and LDL cholesterol levels?

What is the difference between HDL and LDL cholesterol levels?

Directional: Total serum cholesterol is made up of several component lipoproteins. Amongst these are fractions: hdl-c is the "good", which you want to be as high as possible and ldl-c is the "bad" which you want to be as low as possible. Lifestyle and, if needed, drug therapy, can help towards those goals. ...Read more

What is the difference between HDL (high-density lipoprotein) and LDL (low-density lipoprotein)?

What is the difference between HDL (high-density lipoprotein) and LDL (low-density lipoprotein)?

Big difference: Ldl, when found in high concentrations in the blood, can enter your artery walls and initiate an inflammatory reaction that culminates in the development of atherosclerosis, plaque formation in the arterial wall. Hdl had many functions. If HDL is functioning well it can help to prevent atherosclerosis. One of its major functions is to remove cholesterol from the arterial wall. ...Read more

What's the difference between HDL and ldl?

What's the difference between HDL and ldl?

Cholesterol: High-density lipoprotein is known as "good" cholesterol. Low-density lipoprotein is known as "bad" cholesterol.

Ldl can slowly build up in the inner walls of the arteries that supply the heart and brain, with other substances, it can form plaque (thick & hard) in the arteries. ...Read more

Is my cholesterol high (195) because my HDL is high (57)? LDL is near optimal (118). I am taking Accutane (last month), if that makes a difference.

Is my cholesterol high (195) because my HDL is high (57)? LDL is near optimal (118). I am taking Accutane (last month), if that makes a difference.

Cholesterol NOT high: Your cholesterol is NOT high. 195 is perfectly fine. The higher the HDL the better. If your HDL was 40 your total chol. Would be 178; FAR better to have 195 with HDL 57 than 178 with HDL 40. But high cholesterol is not the main cause of heart disease- the real cause is inflammation! See http://tinyurl.

No.: Your HDl cannot be too high. The higher the better. Your total is higher because it is included in a complex formula which contains your high HDL. Your lipid profile is excellent! Don't stress. That being said, if there is early cardiovascular disease in your family you may want to discuss other markers for cardiovascular risk including but not limited to an NMR lipid screening. ...Read more

Hdl over 100 too high?

Never: You can never have too much of a good thing. There is no "excess hdl" disease. Epidemiological studies suggest that the higher your hdl, the lower your risk of heart disease. I've seen a few folks over the last 30 years, with hdls >100. It's rare. None had heart disease. ...Read more

Eat lots of fruits, vegetables, whole grains and lean sources of protein. Include monounsaturated fats in your diet- olive oil/canola oil. Moderate consumption of alcohol may also positively impact HDL levels. 1 glass of wine a day. ...Read more

Medicines to increase hdl?
